Progress Update: Thrusters, Shields, and Ammo
Today I was able to add a few features to my game.
The first one is that the player will be able to press left shift and get a 5 second thruster boost. This is unlimited but has a delay of 5 seconds between uses after the speed is set back to normal. This is also slower than the speed power up.
The Shield now allows you to take three hits before it is gone. It goes from blue being three hits remaining to green with two hits remaining and finally red with 1 hit remaining.
I was also able to get an ammo system working with a counter and ammo power up.
I look forward to sharing more progress soon.
